Michael Cohen on Trump’s ‘White Power’ retweet: I told you so

President Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen condemned the president’s Sunday retweet, saying it was “offensive” and “indefensible.”

Cohen is referring to a post retweeted by the president that showed a Trump supporter in Florida saying “white power” in response to protesters opposing the president. A White House spokesman claimed Trump did not hear the man say “white power” before retweeting the video. The comment appears eight seconds into the two-minute video.

Trump deleted the post two hours after his retweet on Sunday morning.

Cohen, who was released early from prison due to the COVID-19 pandemic, said during his 2019 House Oversight Committee testimony that Trump was “a racist,” and that the president called Black people “stupid.”

Trump’s retweet was condemned by Jewish groups like Bend The Arc.

The post got a softer response from former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain.
